We provide financial support for mining and economic development initiatives that benefit Manitoba and local communities through partnership-based approaches that help grow and diversify the economy - together, with Indigenous communities. Our funding model is supplemental – and most projects require funding from other sources.
Our key objectives are to:
Increase economic partnerships between Indigenous communities and the mineral development industry.
Build capacity in local communities and businesses to increase engagement in economic development opportunities.
Create and maintain short-term and long-term local employment opportunities.
Improve local training and education opportunities to build a skilled local workforce.
Diversify regional economies, particularly in areas that are impacted by fluctuations in the mineral development industry.
Stimulate investment in the mineral development industry.
